Betaine has been shown to protect cells from dehydration, where a slight increase in cell water volume moves cells toward a more anabolic state, while dehydration moves the cell toward a catabolic state. Therefore, betaine helps normalize cellular metabolism in cases of dehydration or high ambient temperatures. Through patented technology, TNIbetain is extracted from sugar beets grown in the USA. The proprietary extraction process results in pure, natural and uniform betaine crystals. TNIbetain aids in balancing the concentration of water and osmolytes in cells and enhances the growth, activity and vitality of cells, thereby supporting the health and welfare of animals.
